Pike Lake Dam Improvements

A $3.4 million contract was awarded to Trucco by ODNR to rehabilitate the failing Pike Lake Dam in 2014. This interesting project consisted of siphoning the existing lake down, removing the existing spillway and lake drain, re-shaping the dam, building a new spillway with architectural treatments, landscaping and parking lot remediation. Nearly 7,000 CY of Roller Compacted Concrete was placed on the face of the dam in 1 ft lifts, utilizing a temporary pugmill set up on the site to produce the RCC.

Caesar Creek Marina

Trucco was the low bidder on this $8.2 million ODNR project at Caesar Creek State Park. This unique project constructed one of the largest public inland marina's in Ohio, including 120 boat slips, a refueling station and revamped parking. New drainage, curb, waterline, sanitary force main, landscaping, paving and electrical were also part of the project. Trucco successfully embraced the challenge of dock building and managing the construction of a floating marina during this exciting project.

East Linden Slope Stabilization

This $1 million project was contracted under Columbus City Schools to repair a slide behind East Linden Elementary. The terain was rough and the site was ecologically sensitive, as the creek onsite drained directly into Alum Creek. The stream had to be diverted while the slope was stablized and the bottom of the creek rebuilt to prevent future erosion. 2300 tons of rip rap, along with new landscaping, now line this 500 ft long section of stream.
